    For some strange reason both my CD and DVD drives have suddenly disappeared. They are not showing in My Computer and just the DVD is showing in Device Manager. However, neither are working. They have been working perfectly since I installed XP in October. The only thing I have done today with my computer is run the Live Update from Norton Anti Virus. Anyone had a similiar problem and got any ideas?

    System Specs

    AMD Athlon 1400 DDR
    512 DDR RAM
    Pioneer DVD
    TEAC CDR drive
    Nvidia GeForce 2 MX400 64Mb
    Creative Soundblaster 1024 soundcard

    I know I can use System Restore but I would rather find out what has caused it first if possible

    Problem solved. It was the bios and an update fixed the problem.
